Question about Air Conditioners

2 Answers

Zoneline 3100 I have a zoneline 3100 , and it seems at a certain temp. the unit shutts down , no fan , no heat . After a few days the unit will begine to run normal again . I have attempted to have it looked at by several heating and plumbing co. but no one wants to work on it . I`m thinking it may be a sensore issue ? Can you help please ! It`a very cold here in Weastern NY . The temp it seems to quit at is around 30-40 degrees .

    Not same problem, but similar. In my case the zoneline 3100 will not shut off. It will sometimes appear to but then turn itself back on (running essentially as a fan) with the switch still in the start position. Only person who even semi looked at it suggested replacing the whole unit. Seems like just a bad switch to me. Is there a good source for replacement switches for these units? (by the way - best answer so far ... not too helpful)

GE Zoneline heating limits


would be easier to get those temps using the outdoor portion of the system, however, not too many companies build thermostats that reach that range

Cold Air Penetrating from around & thru GE Zoneline 2100 Unit


There is a baffle/damper that allows outside fresh air to flow through the unit. This is only supposed to be open in cooling mode when the outside temp is moderate, or whenever you want just fresh air and fan operation.

Find the lever that controlls the baffle.

Some units have a switch in the control panel for this.

Air conitioner turns on by itself


The GE Zoneline units have small DIP switches inside the unit where you can turn various functions on or off. The units have a feature called Heat Sentinel that turns the A/C on at a certain room temperature, even when the unit is turned off. It also has a Freeze Sentinel that turns the heat on automatically, even when the unit is turned off. You can turn off the heat and freeze Sentinel features with the DIP switches in the unit. There are other features you may want to turn off. Read the owner's manual and it will tell you where the switches are and which ones turn off the features. Hope this helps.

How to best run this thing


Hi Laurelrobin,
When the unit is on "low fan", it is fan only, and is recirculating room air. If the damper is open, it can also bring in outside air. If the space is not occupied for extended periods, it's OK to turn the unit "OFF", as long as you have a newer unit with Heat Sentinel, and the Heat Sentinel is turned on. Heat Sentinel will not let the room temp get above 85F, as long as the unit is OFF. Also, in most cases it's best to keep the damper closed. You can check your owner's manual for more info on the Heat Sentinel and other auxiliary functions. I also have an article on the temperature limiting functions of the GE Zoneline.

Problem with GE Zoneline 5200 model


Heat pumps have saftey circuits that prevent liquid flooding of the compressor. Inadequate airflow across the evaporator in cooling can trip this circuit. Have your package unit serviced with particular attention to cleaning the evaporator coil and be sure your filters are clean and changed frequently in the summer months. Hope this helps GL!

Short cycling


The most common cause is the fan relay on the main circuit board. However, if the outside temperature is 30degF and the inside is 60-65degF then the cause could be the insulation is ruined or missing on the backside of the unit's firewall. This can cause the unit's internal thermocouple wire to read below 45degF which is the freeze sentinal temp level. Anything below this temp level will cause the unit to come on for a few minutes to warm up the air and bring it to 46degF or higher to protect internal plumbing from freezing.
The best way to check for this is to manually set the unit to one of the heat modes and the thermostat up just until the heater comes on. Let it run until the unit turns itself off. Then set the mode switch back to Off and see if the unit still cycles on and off as before.
If it does then the main circuit board should be replaced unless you are comfortable de-soldering and re-soldering another fan relay in place.
